Hearing about the wildfires back home was torment enough, this time the disaster can be seen from my current home in Texas.
We have one of the worst droughts since 1925, as we surpassed that 86-year-old record many days ago. Signs along the I-35 corridor flash EXTREME WILDFIRE CONDITIONS… CONSERVE WATER. Over 500 homes have been destroyed by the flames, and there’s no end in sight. This summer’s heat wave sucked the moisture out of the trees, grass and the Earth itself. Everything surrounding the fires only feeds its fury. Meanwhile firefighters from all across the state have converged to help fight these fires. The plume of smoke can be seen for miles.
